Well, I thought that a hunting mod would be pretty damn cool. Something like deer, elk, bears, and even moose as something you could hunt. Basically this; if it was a mod, you could perhaps spawn some animal NPCs and then go hunt them, but the AI would have to want to run the hell away from you and sometimes stop to maybe eat something on the ground when you are far away enough. However if it was a gamemode, I think it would be pretty cool to have a map or maps dedicated to it. A wide open, hilly, lightly forested (in most places), grassy landscape. For the animals, there could be a random generator for them to spawn on, so that you couldn’t just spawnrape deer. To keep it interesting, I was thinking perhaps a ranking system. The more animals you kill, the more points you get to unlocking a better weapon. For instance, if you killed a deer you would get 50 points, since it’s an easy kill and doesn’t attack you. However on a moose or bear, the NPC should try and rape you (IF you hurt it or “startled” it, otherwise make it run away), plus take a damn lot more to kill it. This way, if you killed a more aggressive animal, you would get a higher point count for it. After getting your kill, you “take” the body to a shack (or the human spawn area) for your points to be counted towards your rank. Weapons you could unlock are various sidearms and, of course, rifles. To prevent any faggotry, friendly fire would have to be off, as well as a low player count (something like 8-16? but that’s up to the server owner).
Yes yes, I know, it’s probably the biggest request on facepunch (I mean I think so anyway, you need animal models and NPCs, maps, gamemode, some LUA for rank and such) but this is pretty much just a QUESTION. Is it even possible? Or, has it already been made and I’m a total jackass? If it were possible, I think a mod AND a gamemode would be a good idea. A mod for anyone who wants to have a quick hunting game with friends, just exclude the rank and exclude the random generator, and add in some NPC spawnlists. Then a gamemode for anyone who wants to play it hardcore and get themselves a bigass rifle to go hunting moose with.
Sorry in advance if this has already been made, or is a totally retarded request. Just seemed like something that could be pretty cool if someone put their mind to it. Feel free to post any suggestions towards what it could be like. These are just my ideas on what it could be, but I’m sure you have some much better ideas.
